Can I please have your thoughts on my build?
I am in the fortunate situation of having the $ for a custom build.
I am a club level road racer, and enjoy riding my road SS for training rides.
I am building a SS cx racer with horizontal rear dropouts.
I have the option of cable routing for gears though, and I was thinking about having routing for a 1 x 9 setup available for the future if I wish.
I also have the option of specifying the spacing for the rear axle. I was thinking about going 135mm so I can use a dedicated SS MTB rear hub (e.g. Chris King) for my wheelset.
But the question is...would 135 mm spacing be problematic if I wanted to run a cassette-style rear road hub in the future for a 1 x 9 setup? Or should I go with standard road hub rear spacing?
Your advice much appreciated!
